I went with my drama club to New York and we saw cabaret. It was honestly so fantastic and Alan Cumming was AMAZING. Over all it was just a fantastic show. I definitely recommend it.

LOVED CABARET WITH ALAN CUMMING AND MICHELE WILLIAMS
I saw Cabaret on 6-25-14 during the matinee performance. I was with a bus trip so our seats were up high; however, we could see perfectly and I had my opera glasses to use when I wanted to focus on someone. I will definitely return with my husband and buy the orchestra seat tickets just to be a bit closer and to experience the nightclub venue. Alan & Michelle were fabulous despite the poor reviews I have read. Before the show we were fortunate to have a workshop with Jessica who was a musician/dancer. That was also wonderful. I would highly recommend Cabaret. You won't be disappointed.

I just had to see a Broadway show on my recent trip to New York, and I went to studio 54 to see cabaret! Alan Cummings "owned" the show, no doubt about it!!! The whole performqnce just hit the right note of raunchy funny and tragic. There were the minimum of props, so the actors really had to work hard to stimulate the imagination of the audience and do so with great skill. I most certainly would recommend it!

REVIVAL OF A REVIVAL WORKS!
I saw "Cabaret" 3 times when it ran from 1998-2004. If I weren't a Roundabout subscriber, I might not have seen this revival of a revival--- that would have been a shame. It seems less glitzy and much more poignant this time around. Is it because I'm older? Is it because the beyond fabulous Alan Cumming is older? Is it because Linda Edmond and Danny Burstein are SO TERRIFIC in their roles that their part of the story seemed more important than that of Cliff and Sally---who knows. The production works its devastating magic. The musicians are great. Michelle Williams's innate fragility and vulnerability work very well here---she handles the singing just as Sally would! Well done, all involved with this production. Highly recommended.

GREAT SHOW - MICHELLE WILLIAMS NOT THE
I was very anxious to see Alan Cumming, and I was curious to see Michelle Williams stretch out in the Sally Bowles roll. Alan was fantastic. He really looks like he is having fun and the way that the play is staged gives him an opportunity to be more than just the MC. Michelle Williams is so mis-cast in this part. She is not a sharp, witty performer on stage and she really seemed to struggle holding the notes. She really blew past Maybe This Time, a show stopper tune, but she seemed to get lost in the song. In addition, her fake Brit accent was annoying. She could’ve been just as campy as Alan Cumming, but she didn’t seem to know how. The band was absolutley great! Ths strings added depth to the songs. The costumes were excellent. The Studio 54 Kit Kat Club set-up, was fun. I'm so glad I went.

What were you thinking casting Michelle Williams into such an integral role? My God, I was embarrassed for her! She can barely act, never mind sing! Thank God the orchestra was there to help cover up her errors! Two of the best songs from the show were lost! What a shame. Loved Alan Cumming who saved the show from disaster. And please don't replace her with Brook Shields! She is the "Kiss of Death" to any Broadway show.

Cummings was wonderful, dancing and costumes great as was Linda Emond, but Mendes needs to cut 10 minutes from first act. Michelle's english accent doesn't work and her diction needs to be clearer and louder. She needs to be directed with a sharper edge and clearer vision of Sally. Her black sexy costume for 1st act needs to be sexy which it is not. More like ladylike lingerie. She needs to etching in sharper tones and her voice amped up. She flubbed her first song, but did a great job of singing Cabaret. Second act has Michelle's head turned away from audience as she has confrontation with her lover. Could not see her face or her hear her. Mendes...never let the actor speak to the back wall in a confrontational s scene. Mendes needs to shorten it up, gear it up.....Cummings also doesn't neeed to ask au dience members to dance with him at start of act 2. Embarrassing and corny....always makes audience uncomfortable...and it's Borscht Belt. Musicians great.

WHAT WAS MICHELLE WILLIAMS DOING?
Alan Cummin was sublime as expected, and the only reason I didn't walk out. Michelle William's performance was confusing and an awkward portrayal of Sally Bowles, made what was otherwise an entertaining show that I really want to rate as excellent but can't because of her performance. It appeared she was confused over her characterisation and just looked uncomfortable and made the audience feel the same. I just don't understand what the vision is of Sally Bowles in this performance. The accent was weird, singing off-key and there was a powerful sense of relief when she was off-stage.

SHE AIN'T LIZA
Michelle Williams was absolutely awful. She could not sing, dance or speak clearly. Alan Cummings was wonderful as always. The orchestra was also excellent and the older couple charming. Kit Kat girls' costmes colorless. Studio 54 looked fantastic. I would not recommend this show to anyone. My friends and I left at intermissiion.
